Okinawan Martial Arts Weapon

The Tonfa is one of the oldest martial arts weapons, with an interesting history of development.

It is widely used throughout the world with many students perfecting skills that have been passed down from dojo to dojo and master to master.

The Tonfa is a very basic weapon and simple in its appearance, however, it is a very versatile weapon that requires years of practice to master – but once mastered, it is a amazing piece of martial arts equipment.

The Tonfa itself has given rise to several variations of the basic weapon – the PR-24 side handle police baton, or Police Baton is one typical development.

Traditionally made from red oak wood, the Tonfa is a weapon for both hands – and as such is used in pairs as a double handed weapon, generally only for self defence.

As with all weapons, we find the Tonfa is more than capable of holding its own as a full on offensive attack weapon – and very effective it is too

These traditionally constructed tonfa are made of hardwood and designed for maximum efficiency.

Many of the different martial arts disciplines encourage the practice of using a Tonfa as well as the use of many other  Okinawan Martial Arts Weapons, however, the Tonfa is found in the modern martial arts clubs these days with  both Training and Techniques being taught to many students.


Many Karate, Judo and all Kobudo clubs often teach their students these techniques as well as Formal Kata alongside their normal syllabus of martial arts training to enhance the students skills.


Japanese fighting weapons are many and varied, with a long and interesting history. Their sizes and shapes have changed little over the years and the weapons you see now are much the same as they would have been back in the days of the Samurai Warriors of old.


Martial arts training that uses many different types of weapons is often seen in the Dojo’s today and should be encouraged, in keeping with the old traditional ways of Okinawan martial arts weapons.
